Nearly 800 people from 500 companies across 52 countries registered for the Bermuda Business Development Agency’s third annual 2021 Virtual Bermuda Tech Summit, an overall increase from the event held last year.

David Hart, the CEO of the agency, said: “We encourage you to start planning your trip to visit Bermuda next October to attend our in-person Tech Summit, planned to be held as part of Tech Week from October 17-21.”

“Until then, the BDA stands ready to assist prospects and investors looking to enter Bermuda’s dynamic tech and innovation ecosystem,” Mr Hart said.

“Please contact our comprehensive concierge service team, so we can leverage our expertise and network to speed your entrance and enhance your success in Bermuda.”

Mr Hart expressed his appreciation for those involved in making the 2021 summit a success, particularly the 79 speakers who provided informative and engaging professional insights.

“A running theme across many of the 23 panels was how Bermuda’s robust yet pragmatic regulatory environment, coupled with our advanced infrastructure and history of innovation, makes the island an ideal location for quality technology companies looking for a domicile,” Mr Hart said.

Key panels are posted on the BDA’s YouTube channel, including the interesting and entertaining opening conversation between David Burt, the Premier, and Forbes associate editor Michael del Castillo covering a number of topics, including cryptocurrencies and blockchain.

The BDA also thanked the 12 sponsors and partners: Platinum — Appleby, Bespoke, Bittrex, Circle and Walkers; Gold — 24 Exchange; Silver — Carey Olsen, StableHouse, Westham Trade Company and XBTO; content partner — Global Blockchain Business Council; spirits partner — Goslings.
